Lineups, etc.

Just a few quick updates.

Jon Lester threw 40 pitches in the bullpen this morning, focusing on his fastball and changeup. He’ll throw another bullpen on Wednesday.

Also, Mike Lowell is getting a rest today. Terry Francona let him know yesterday that he’d be getting the day off. Lowell has started 34 of the team’s 35 games so far this season.

There was an appearance by mini-Papi today. D’Angelo Ortiz, the son of the Sox designated hitter, showed up in the clubhouse, where he wielded a mean bat.

Today is pink bat day in honor of Mother’s Day, so don’t be surprised at the pink sticks in the hands of the Sox.


And, with that, I’d like to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there. (Of course, to my own mom, as well.)

That’s all I’ve got for you for now.
